How effectively can technology control climate change?
People will have to switch from getting most of their energy from burning fossil fuels to getting most of their energy from a wide variety of clean energy sources.
Clean energy technologies like wind and solar power produce energy without burning fossil fuels. Other technologies reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency or by capturing these gases before they can enter the atmosphere.
Ghana - Sucessfully takes on 'Climate Change Policies'
- January 29, 2014, government ministers, members of parliament and other high-level policy makers in Ghana took part in a seminar on the impact of climate change and long-term climate risks for agriculture and food security.
-Ghana is well endowed with renewable energy resources, particularly solar and biomass energy resources. Blue Energy unveiled plans to build a 155 MW solar power plant in Ghana; a project which analysts say will be the largest of its kind on the continent.
Nigeria & Pakistan - Unsucessfully takes on 'Climate Change Policies'
Nigeria has a poor environment from polluted waters and industrial waste. Their health as a nation is greatly reduced and impacted by non-green living practices. Due to lack of water, the country over-farms the little fertile ground that exists. This leads to soil erosion and poor-quality foods. Industry in Nigeria also gives little thought to the environment.
Pakistan is also low on the environmentally-friendly score sheet. The country produces a large amount of oil, which damages the ground. Pakistan too, has reduced fertile areas, leading to the over-farming of natural resources and food sources. Because of excessive mining and oil production, the pollution level is high.
Both countries lack in Climate change polices and as developing countries the environment is not a priority to the growth of their economy and infrastructure.
